We had a lovely friendly welcome here. We ordered a full English breakfast. It was worth the money (£4.95) and very tasty. Fast service too

Thank god for democracy but somehow I don't think you will agree, but we are surely glad you've moved to Manchester to give us such an appreciative review. You are more than welcome to try our homemade steak pie and chips again but just in case you fancy something different you may want to try our cheese and onion homemade pie, homemade lasagne, curry and chips, homemade soup or maybe just a steak Canadian sandwich. Thanks.

Being hooked on our burgers means you will be missing out on our chips, homemade cheese and onion or steak and onion pies, lasagne, curry, soup, steak Canadian and tuna melts. So hopefully you will visit again and try one of our other popular homemade specials along with your love of our burgers. Thank you.

We found ourself parked just down from this gem today having run the color run over at the Etihad. On our return to the car we were looking for some lunch and popped in. Two chip barms a chips and gravy and three teas was £9 a bargain at Manchester prices. The chips were hit fresh and clearly home prepared delicious and a great treat. We will be back next time we are in Manchester, a Manchester hidden gem for sure :)

How lucky are we that you found the two gems of Manchester, the Etihad and Linda's Pantry. We are so glad you enjoyed the chips, the gravy and the barm's and next time you may wish to try our homemade Lasagne, Veg, chicken or beef curry, chilli con carne with rice and chips. The Gem that's hidden is the value for money in the unique blend of homemade meals that we try to keep as value for money as much as possible. Hope to see you again soon again. Thank you

I really can not express how happy we have been to find a place like this! Located just off Manchester Picadilly Station, this was the best hit we have made. After hiking for 10 days around Iceland, we were hungry as hell and Linda's Pantry was the best place to stop it. From the moment we have entered, we felt this is a genuine english place to eat. Ladies (Emma & Donna) gave us one of the warmest welcome and the food we have had (Steak Pie with Chips, Peas and Gravy for just under GBP 4,-) was fantastic. After such experience we decided to go here for breakfast the following day and that was also just perfect (Full English Breakfast for just under GBP 5,-) and filled us until we got back to Prague later in the afternoon. There were another two really nice ladies in the morning (Valerie & Little Linda) and both were also very friendly. If we come back to Manchester, this will be the place to eat for sure! Keep up the good work - you are great!
